Ezekiel Elliott, the other designated in the defeat of the Cowboys
The interceptions of dak prescott and the fact that the quarterback still doesn’t take that step forward in the important momentsended up again frustrating Dallas’ dream of being able to end a long drought without even being able to play in the Super Bowl.
Prescott was erratic and unable to react to adversity before the san francisco 49ers. However, there was a watershed that ended up being decisive in the development of the duel that was played in Santa Clara, California. It was about the injury of running back, Tony Pollard.
Ezekiel Elliott failed again when replacing pollard, who this season was pushing the Ohio State graduate to the bench, who went from being a great figure to an obstacle for the ‘America’ team.

Ezekiel Elliott was selected as the number 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. His campaign as a rookie left a pleasant taste in the mouths of the fans and the leaders of the Dallas team. The running back finished the season with 1,631 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns.
However, curiously his rookie season was the best of his career. 2017 was a year in which injuries did not allow him to excel, although in 2018 and 2019 he again exceeded a thousand yards in the season.
In 2022, Elliott was expected to be an important piece for Mike McCarthy’s team again, but far from being a solution, it ended up being an obstacle for a Tony Pollard which showed that he is ready to be the workhorse of the team. ‘Zeke’ failed to pass 100 rushing yards in any of the 15 games he played with the Cowboys.
Now, it’s time to decide. Elliott signed a six-year, $90 million extension in 2021That is, he has four years left on his contract. However, people expect him to be traded to another team, since it is not the same one that made it to the NFL.
